How to teach offside to young players


Watch video/animation below. Your goal is to teach them to aspects of the rule:

1-if the ball is in front of you, you can never be offsides
2-if a defender is in front of you, you can not be offsides.

While this rule is more complicated then this, I have found when introducing the rule with these 2 major points the players are able to grasp this rather quickly.

Over time you introduce the midfield line, no offside on a throw in, offside position, and when the ball is played in the air.

7 & 8 year olds will learn these 2 points and be able to apply it immediately to game situations.
